Remember how poorly Mir was regarded before the Lesnar fight? This guy was (and in terms of actually deserving a shot, still is) light years away from a title shot. So he heel hooks a guy that has only been training for a short while, has a 1-0 record, and now he's fighting for the interim title. Remember how he got destroyed by Brandon Vera and Pe De Pano. And his performance against Dan Christianson? It was terrible. If Nog loses, then it shows how much Nog has fallen from grace since his early days. Almost getting KO'd by Heath, and losing to Frank Mir, would be devastating to his career. Everyone knows that Frank Mir got this title shot because he is a white guy that can speak English. Fabricio was clearly the #1 contendor for the title at the time. If you don't want to put Werdum on the show because he isn't marketable, fine, put Mir on. But Werdum should have had his chance first. Mir never deserved this, even if he beats Nog.
